Windows log-on password is helpful and necessary in preventing unauthorized access.
The Windows log-on password comes in handy if you do not want intruders or unauthorized users to log onto your computer and make system changes, delete files or install applications without your permission. When you set the password, Windows prompts you to enter it each time you restart or log off Windows. Therefore, it is very necessary to set such a password for your computer.
Setting more than one Windows log-on user accounts can be helpful before you forgot Windows password.
Usually computer users are highly recommended to set two or more user accounts for their computers, having at least one administrator user account. This can bring convenience if your roommate or family members share your computer and it also can prevent your computer from being locked when you forgot Windows login password.
